Ubisoft has finally let the cat out of the bag when it comes to the developer’s newest Assassin’s Creed adventure. After over a year of leaks, the company confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the newest game in the series and will follow Basim across 860 Baghdad.
The official announcement follows the most recent leak where a DLC image for Assassin’s Creed Mirage was spotted online. The image is reportedly part of the game’s “extra content” which will be available for players who pre-order certain editions of the game. This is similar to previous Assassin’s Creed games which included extra missions and explorable dungeons through pre-order incentives.
Given the recent leak for the Assassin’s Creed Mirage DLC, there is a good chance the game is definitely going back to basics as mentioned in previous leaks. Reports claim that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a smaller, focused game instead of it including a large-scale open world to explore as previous titles did.
Reports claim that Mirage will feature four smaller areas to work through in the game with various bosses claiming their dominance over the hub. This feature sounds much on the lines of previous games including the first Assassin’s Creed game and other titles. The later Assassin’s Creed games, since the release of Origins, included large sprawling worlds so this newest entry sounds like a breath of fresh air.
Ubisoft will fully announce Assassin’s Creed Mirage next week on 10 September during its special Forward event. It will kick off at 9pm CEST, 12pm PT over on YouTube.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the next Assassin’s Creed game.
